Angela Wakefield was born in 1978 in Accrington, Lancashire and has had a strong instinctive flair for drawing and painting since childhood
Angela started painting seriously and pursuing her career as a professional artist over a decade ago in 1999, and has been going from strength to strength ever since.

Angela is now a celebrated urban artist with her original artworks being sought after throughout the UK, Europe and USA.  She has been the subject of many art based articles, including several in the magazine 'Art of England'.  It was when an image of one of her paintings appeared on its front cover that she found her artwork being pursued by Danny Boyle to appear in his upcoming film 'Trance' about an art heist set in contemporary London.  With industry professionals and collectors paying an avid interest, there is an acceptance that her artwork represents a sound financial investment.
Angela is a young artist with a growing national reputation, producing work that resonates with a broad range of people, offering enduring representations of contemporary landscapes.  Her urbanized genre, the scattering of light in form, and the sheer reality of scene are engaging.  Angela's work has now become highly collectable and sound financial investment.

'Angela Wakefield is a rising star of British art; her work, mainly urban scenes of the North of England, is receiving acclaimed attention whilst exploring a new reality essence in our counterculture… I was struck by the urbanized genre, the scattering of light in form, and the sheer reality of scene. I have not seen such arrangement in art since viewing paintings by Edward Hopper.'
